Increased Water Release

As of today the amount of water being released through the dam at Tahoe City has once again been increased. This is the highest flow since the late 1990s.

This means the Truckee River will be running very high from just below the dam all the way through Reno and Sparks.

As long as the river is flowing at this higher rate considerable care should be taken for the water is extremely cold and swift. Hypothermia can quickly take your life.
